    Court Closures 4/20-4/28

    By Dale Filbert, 04/19/2018

    This is an update from the Sunrise Park District on the Rusch Park pickleball court closure. Please mark your calendars and let other players know who may not be club members.

    ALL courts at Rusch Park will be closed for court maintenance starting this coming Friday morning at 8AMand will not open again until Saturday morning April 28th. Closed for 8 days.

    The only exception is this Sunday, April 22,  where 4 courts will be available to the club for the "Bring A Newbie" event starting at 12PM. Following this event, the gates to the courts will be locked. 

    So the "Bring a Newbie" event for this Sunday starting at 12PM is still on. Bring your friends/relatives who might be interested in the sport.

    Sorry for the inconvenience but the end result should be an improved playing surface with fresh paint.

    Court Improvements Coming This Spring

    By Reine Steel, 02/12/2018

    The SPC board has voted to split the cost of court resurfacing/repainting with the park district.  All six existing courts will be resurfaced, and the large crack running through courts 2 & 5 will be repaired.  The park district hopes to do this some time in April.  The SPC board also voted to replace the stolen windscreen by the Challenge Court.  The park believes that the person responsible for taking the previous windscreen was caught.

    New Court Signage

    By Reine Steel, 09/10/2017

    Next time you're at the courts check out the brand new permanent signage installed by the club. We recently had two metal signs printed outlining our court rules and procedures.  We also replaced the paper court numbers with  hand-made metal signs, and labeled Court #4 as the Challenge Court and Court #6 as the Beginner's Court.  On the north side fence, you will also find a new Pickleball Central banner with our club's discount code.  Thanks to our President Lee Swayne, Ambassador Steve Cooper, and Judie Cooper for creating and hanging these great looking signs.

    Sunscreen/Windbreak

    By Dale Filbert, 04/07/2017

    Using club funds, the club purchased a sunscreen/windscreen to be installed along the entire length of the East fence. The Sunrise Park District installed the screening on April 7, 2017. Unfortunately, on April 11, someone cut the fence to get access to the courts and removed a large section of the screening. We plan to replace this section sometime soon.
